La Côte International School (LCIS) offers both an international programme, leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme at graduation, and a bilingual English-French Swiss Maturité preparation programme.
Our innovative Suisse Maturité programme provides the best of both worlds in terms of bilingualism and pedagogical approach. It is currently available to students aged 10 to 15 years old (grades 7 to 11 HarmoS). The Swiss Maturité curriculum is based on the plan d’études romand (PER) and provides students with a solid education, opening doors to higher education, including access to local Swiss universities. The schedule of classes each week is evenly split between French and English instruction, with the addition of German courses, as required for the federal diploma. At LCIS, students in the Maturité section join those in the international curriculum for all of their courses in English. They also have the opportunity to participate in the variety of activities offered as part of the international curriculum, such as study trips, sports camps or international expeditions. This regular immersion not only promotes bilingualism, it also helps to develop social skills, creativity and a curiosity to learn.
LCIS offers students an exceptional, secure study environment. Our modern campus includes well-equipped practical science laboratories, a 250-seat theatre, music practice rooms, a recording studio, design and visual arts workshops, and a double gymnasium. As a member of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the leading premium school organisation, with 69 schools worldwide, our students have access to a unique online platform called Global Campus, which allows our students to connect and collaborate with peers from other NAE schools and thereby develop a truly international perspective. NAE students also benefit from enriched learning experiences as a result of our collaborations with MIT, the Juilliard School of Performing Arts and UNICEF. Our world-class teachers have access to a unique, professional development platform, for their own continued learning as well as to share best practices and ideas globally. Our experienced teachers bring personalised learning to each child and deliver innovative and inspiring lessons, whether on-campus or, when the need arises, through our well-developed Virtual School Experience (VSE).
At La Côte International School, our educational offerings were selected to ensure academic rigour and challenge, while providing an educational journey that allows your child to flourish. For more information about our international or Swiss Maturité programmes, please contact us at .
